      Great movie! On my ‘all-time best’ list. Superb acting all the way round. And everytime I watch it I wonder why Adrian Lester, the young black male, didn’t make it big time following this.

    Man, I just can’t worked up over either of these teams. But I guess I like the Cards a bit better. Shhh, don’t tell WMCB. 🙂

    UVA got stomped by State today. Ugly. Not that I’m a UVA guy, but it is the closest team, so I have to like them a little.

    Tweeting this picture of #OWS working groups. Every identity under the sun is represented, except women.

      OMG, they have “Occupy Intelligence Agency”. Fell on the floor laughing at that one.

    • DandyTiger says:

      Just cracking me up when I see the extreme level of bureaucracy in these consensus groups that of course can never have consensus. So not only do the spin their wheels forever on a topic, but they have endless topics too. Fucking fantastic. And yet, they don’t see to get that the spinning your wheels forever is a feature and not a big.

      Wonder if they’re still at the same nonsense a year from now, will any of them look up and say, wait a minute, this is never going to go anywhere. Nah.

    • Lola-at-Large says:

      Wait, I was wrong. I guess the “Minutes and Docs” group is for women. Gotta ger yer secretaries somehow, right?

      It is a pretty funny list, DT. 😀

      PS; I’m drinking my first beer in weeks. So delicious. Had to switch to vodka to avoid carbs, but I’m living wild tonight.

    • DandyTiger says:

      It is pretty funny. Remember, in a working group or GA, anyone can block a proposal. If 75% of the group believe the block is principled, then only 10% have to support the blocker for the proposal to be tabled. Rolling down the road, going nowhere. Wheels on fire.

    Well . . . I’m sitting here reading Crawdad Hole right this very minute.

      Oh, and . . . eating a piece of cake from a goodby office party for a co-worker who is going to another division. We are still among the long term still-employed and grateful for that.

    Okay, crazy Texans are flinging armadillo at each other now. WTF? http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/nationnow/2011/10/texas-man-sought-in-frozen-armadillo-attack.html

    Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Texas (spent my childhood there, age 1-11), but dang, they do have a different way of expressing anger there.

    I’m reposting this here because this apparently is the current thread.

    I’m hiding in my bedroom at the in-laws while everybody else watches the rugby world cup finals. They put the baby into the playpen (CHILD ABUSE!!!!) and she is perfectly happy unless she can see me, because she knows that I am a sucker. We’re visiting because it’s the beginning of the first long school vacation of the year (Toussaint–All Saints’ Day, which they celebrate by giving the kids ten days off from school) and there is a wonderful custom here by which grandma and grandpa take your kids off your hands for THE WHOLE HOLIDAY. So we are here dropping them off. They are super excited because their cousins will be here too. I was very judgey of my BIL always “dumping his kids” with grandma and grandpa until we actually moved here and learned that (at least in this family) it’s not actually optional.

    Aaand now everybody is screaming. Sounds like France scored.

    LaL, I love Texas too! My dad has lived there for almost 40 years (since, uh, right before the divorce) and my sister and I spent our summers there as kids. Come for the BBQ and the Luby’s, stay for the skin cancer.

    • Lola-at-Large says:

      Oh wow, you poor thing! But I do wish I had in-laws like that. Mine are batshit insane. I thought it was cultural meme about mother-in-laws until I got married. Enjoy your days of freedom!

        My first MIL was BSC too–probably shoulda paid a little bit more attention to that AT THE BEGINNING and saved a lot of $ on lawyers. I used to think that the reason I got along with my current MIL is that she speaks no English and my French sucked, but as my language skills have improved we have, amazingly, remained on good terms. We did say “no” to her plan to take the baby (I think 16 months old is a LITTLE young to be gone for 10 days) and the world did not stop spinning on its axis. So it will be a nice week-and-a-half with only one little one to take care of–it will be her last hurrah as the “little princess” before the new baby arrives, at which point I expect her head to explode.
